Walking out: chasing dreams and living on purpose

Leaving my previous company was one of the biggest decisions I had to make this 2018.

I had a very smooth career back there. I have grown personally and professionally much more than I expected. Well-trained, heavily exposed and deployed across different accounting services, I was able to obtain above average experience in the industry.

I was happy with the work back there.

We catered both accounting and taxation for clients abroad. My previous company taught me to take risks, even when it will need to force me out of my comfort zone. Professional top level management, highly effective internal controls and high-level exposure to work environment and company processes—everything was well-defined and I knew exactly where my career is going.

But…I had to let go.

One of the main reasons was to make time for my writing.

I honestly think that my previous company prepared me enough to be able to make this big decision when it finally comes. With no hesitation, I was able to decide forthright when it stood in front of me. Upon leaving, I know I was shaped into someone who is ready to face what’s ahead his life.

I said I wanted to explore.

All I have ever explored for months now, is myself. I’ve seen how I started to make mature decisions, invest into something of higher risk, build financial plans and potentially secure my future.

For the first time in my life, I was not chasing for money alone. I started to chase for more. Writing made me see the beauty of life and how it is supposed to be shared. I felt like I have a greater purpose, so I had to make that big step which will lead me to where I should be going.

I found a company that offered a 7am to 4pm shift. I was so thankful that I was able to finish the recruitment process within a day, four hours and 29 minutes to be exact.

I can say, as of now, I am thrilled and satisfied with my clients and the works that they are giving me. I thought I had to work on the same accounting service, which I initially demanded from them, but gradually they started to give me something like the missing piece in the puzzle of my core service.

I didn’t like it at first, but I learned to love it. This is just another example that we should take risks, even when we’re not comfortable with it.

Keep going on until the risk finally becomes comfortable because achieving that phase could only mean there is growth that happened within you–in your mindset, in your status, or both.

Given the early out in the office, I was able to do more and live more. When I have the urge to write, I always go home early and write down the ideas in my mind. When I don’t have the motivation, I don’t force myself. Instead, I try to grow my network of readers and followers in social media sites which is in pursuit to help those who need my words of encouragement, or rather, empowerment.

It helped me increase my productivity.

This is another one of the results and things I was able to do when I decided to push through on chasing the purpose I am destined to serve. This is a fearless statement, but never carefree. I was ready when I made the decision and I am determined to make that decision stay right.

What I’ve learned in this memorable experience are the following:

  • Walk out when necessary
  • Chase your dreams
  • Live your purpose
  • Prepare yourself for big decisions
  • Take greater risks
  • Pursue what your heart truly desires
  • It’s never too late to start doing the things you love
  • And lastly, give a good fight.

Walk out only when your heart is ready. Have the courage and train your mind to accept the consequences associated with our every action. The real fight is not in walking out, it is when the opportunities you left behind starts to confront you and the battles you chose starts to get tough.

But do not worry, these are fleeting and they can never beat the rewards that are waiting close ahead. So, go on and do whatever you want to do in your life.

You are not existing in this world only to prove yourself. You live to love yourself and to share this overwhelming love to everyone else.

Love hard.

And though we are never completely free, still, live free.
